I really appreciate EVERYONE that voted for me . I have worked hard on this bike and learned a lot from the awesome group on the forum .
When I got home in March of '12 from my first DOD civilian deployment , I bought the Road Glide and immediately put slash tip mufflers on, as well as power duals and powder coated some parts .
During my second deployment I started ordering a lot of parts .
I came home in December for a couple weeks and tore the bike down for a friend to paint .. Bought some Coastal Moto wheels and more parts ..
When I got home in May , the paint wasn't finished , but I put the bike together so I could ride and installed a Stage 4 kit , only to get some motor noise after installation , so I didn't get to ride and the bike sat at the dealer for four months ..
I came home in September , took my mom for a ride , scraped a floorboard in a slow turn , she must have put her foot down , and we went down .. .
this time I tore the whole bike down and re did everything right with Cobalt Blue Metallic , Silver and Black .

Congratulations on being voted BOTM. It's a great looking bike while still retaining the the original character and utility of the RG. Love the Cobalt Blue. While JTB poked some fun at you by saying "another long winded write up", I appreciate that you gave us a little background to the bike and what it means to you. Your deployments overseas, the motor mod issues, and even dumping the bike with your mom on-board, are all part of your experience with your scoot. Personally, I find that a lot more interesting that just giving us a parts listing. I hope you continue to enjoy the ride.
I almost got rid of her. she was boring.... I had more fun on my 2000 SE RG.
Now finally got her almost where I want her

I mean I just bought it this week! I've admired this bike for a couple of years and my bud finally decided to sell it. It was 50 degrees Monday so I had one afternoon to ride it a few miles, now it's gonna be record lows for several days. Bike only has 27K miles and so far I've counted up up...
